"From start to finish, my Fortuna coach was a great sounding board, helping me think about how to structure the thoughts and messages I wanted to put across within my applications. She was always readily available and really proactive in checking in on my progress. Her feedback was almost immediate and working with her felt like a very personalized experience. I felt she knew me inside out by the time applications were due and will always be thankful for her guidance and suggestions - no stone left unturned!"

"Fortuna uses its intimate knowledge of the business school admissions process right from the moment they match you with a team of two admissions consultants who have once been "insiders" at your dream schools. Fortuna consultants are incredibly generous with their time and attention at every step of the process. Their help is particularly invaluable in terms of deciding one's "positioning" and the specific hook on one's essays. I will be attending Wharton this fall with an exceedingly generous scholarship!"

"I decided to work with an MBA admissions coach 12 weeks before the HBS Round 1 application deadline. From the first minute of my 1.5h application kick-off call with Fortuna’s HBS expert, I felt that she shared my desire to win. She clearly considered my application her Full-Time job. Thanks to her excellent essay editing skills and her continuous availability, we managed to come up with a picture-perfect essay in less than four weeks. She shared extremely valuable HBS insider tips that no one else (e.g. HBS alumni) would provide me. Working with my Fortuna coach – who knows HBS inside out – really made the difference. Five months after I started working with Fortuna, I can call myself a proud HBS admit, and I don’t know how I would have done without Fortuna’s help."

"As a film producer with a background in PR, I knew setting my sights on the top MBA programs in Europe was going to be a challenge. Working with Fortuna is the single best decision I made before applying and I would strongly encourage anyone looking to apply to an MBA to choose Fortuna. Their collective experience working on the inside of the world’s top business schools, their keen insight into the specifics that will make candidates stand out, and their meticulous process in crafting applications, is truly a winning combination. For me, it resulted in the best possible outcome."

"I made the mistake of not using Fortuna the first time I applied to business school (and believe me, it was a mistake – I did not get any acceptances). If you're applying to business school, don't make the same mistake I did. When I decided to reapply, I was weary of using another firm given the experience I had. However, Fortuna proved right away how they would be extremely valuable. Even before I signed on, my coach spent significant time and effort discussing with me the ins and outs of the application process and my background. Fortuna will help you find your voice and put your best self forward on applications. As I was a re-applicant, my Fortuna coach took a lot of time to review all my applications and identify where I could improve my second time around. Her analysis was excellent, evidenced by the fact that I am beginning at my dream program this fall."

"Fortuna was amazing during my unique process. I originally started to work with them back in 2015. When starting the application process, I was hoping to improve my GMAT score. Unfortunately, I did not get my dream GMAT score. Instead of recommending to still apply in 2015, my Fortuna coaches both advised me to get my GMAT score up and then apply. I really appreciated that candid answer from them because they definitely could've led me down a different path. I eventually got the score I needed and worked with them on a fast track to hit R1 deadlines. They pushed me to put forth the best application and showcase my authentic self (instead of just writing what I thought the admissions wanted to hear). I am proud to say I got into my dream school and I could not have done it without Fortuna!"

"I really cannot thank Fortuna enough for helping me get into a top school. I was a prospective student with a low GMAT score initially. After starting to work with Fortuna, I ended up delaying my application. This was because we decided I needed to get my GMAT score up in order to apply and get accepted into a top school. They could've pushed me to just apply the first time around because it was easier, but they guided me toward the longer, harder road. Because I delayed and restarted my application the next year, they essentially worked with me twice. They were so supportive the entire time and really pushed me to get my story straight. Each of our sessions was like a therapy session to dig deeper and bring out my true story."

"Having gone through the application process unsuccessfully the previous year I am able to especially appreciate the constant support and guidance that I have received from Fortuna throughout my application journey this year. Looking back, I do not think I could have asked for a better guide. Going to business school is a significant investment of time and money and is probably one of the most important decisions I have made. I am glad to have had Catherine's advice, encouragement and support during this journey and could not recommend her and Fortuna highly enough"
